We all could use a dose of deep self care in a beautiful mountain setting right?

 

“Come with me to Sautee, Georgia and the tranquil and sacred retreat center called Elohee November 8-11 to learn, renew, relax and restore. . .” – Lynn Louise Wonders

 

If you are a woman who practices psychotherapy or other helping or healing arts, you know how your self care can fall by the wayside in your dedication to your work helping others.

 

In this retreat weekend, Lynn Louise Wonders will be teaching experiential classes in a gentle practice of mindfulness meditation, easy Tai Chi and Chi Kung exercises, basic, gentle Yin Yoga, and additional classes on avoiding and mitigating burn-out and compassion fatigue. (There may be 12 CE hours available for additional fee – in progress).

 

There will be hiking through the woods and down to the cascading 100 foot waterfall where you will be inspired and feel blessed by and connected with Nature. At night we will gather around the fire pit to connect with one another, gaze at the stars and relax before bedtime.

 

Your stay will include rooms housed in lovely newly-built cabins with crisp, cozy white bedding and decorative rugs that cover beautiful hardwood floors. There is a gathering place called the Tea Room where you can go to talk with others or sit quietly between classes. We will meditate together with the rising and setting sun and we will enjoy delicious meals together. **All meals listed offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options along with some meat-based dishes.
